Not sure how many of The Ws listened to the Opie & Anthony Show, but they are announcing today that they’ve signed with XM Satellite Radio.

This is potentially huge news for the Satellite Radio business (especially with Stern threatening to take his act to Satellite when his current contract is up), & I was just curious as to whether any of you guys have experience with XM & what your opinions were of it.

Here’s the Press Release (biz.yahoo.com)

That's one small step for satellite radio, one giant leap(backward) for quality radio...

I wasnt the bigest fan of the show but I still see tons of WOW stickers and I think they had a pretty big following.

XM, of course, is awesome radio. I get it on the road a lot from Hertz. I don't think it's worth 10 bucks a month though. But if you're a sports nut, it might be. Sound is great, the tuner is wonderful and there's tons of stuff on there. If I worked in NYC again, I might get it, just because you're on the road 3 hrs a day. It would be awesome for a driver of any sort.

I don't understand why people would pay $10/month for the basic service, then another $2/month for the "premium channel" that O&A will be on.

And if I remember correctly, XM is partially owned by Clear Channel. I guess this is the first shot across the bow of Sirius, where I assume Stern will go.

They are partially owned by clear channel, which is why I would never in a million years subscribe to XM. If you look real hard today; in-between the payola controlled playlists, shock jocks, and right wing frat-boy talk radio, you still might acutely find a decent LOCAL radio station. Now by the end of the decade, thanks to Americans addiction to everything plastic and spoon fed, they will go the way of the Do Do bird and of everything else local, but in the meantime I will put a little effort into finding the gems that made radio the great medium it was for so many decades. Best yet, its free radio, what a concept.

Dude, calm down. Everything's going to be all right. Just breathe.

Personally, the return of O and A might just get me to get XM radio. I would pay 10 a month to get rid of commercials and for more choice (so I actually kinda agree with Nag about the radio stations) in what I listen to. I enjoyed the O & A show, but I hope that XM will list other shows that would be on this "premium" channel.

O&A == sold. Now I just have to wonder what combination of car/computer/home stereo adapter kits I'll want to get.

I'll also wonder how long it'll take for fans to start posting completed shows to USENET and P2P, and how long it'll take for XM to start going after them with bazookas. (My answers: Not Long and Not Long.)
